to the possible nomination of u.n. ambassador susan rice to be the next secretary of state seems to be softening just a bit. it was rice's account of the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, that set off the firestorm of criticism. rice said a mob angered by an anti-muslim video was to blame, not terrorists. senator lindsey graham said he'd oppose rice but now said he'd listen to her. >> when she comes over if she does, there will be lots of questions asked of her about this event and others. but i do not believe the video is the cause. >> graham says he still believes the white house intentionally misled the public about the terrorist link to the attack. >>> a big step for china's military. for the first time a fighter jet landed their only aircraft carrier. the chinese news agency says sunday's exercise marked the china bought it from the ukraine in 1998 and spent years refurbishing it but it's not expected to be ready for combat for some time. >>> one of the great political mysteries of the middle east gets a step closer to being solved. what killed palestinian leader yasse

recently reread president obama's speech to the u.n. where there is no question he is saying the video did it. all of that was false. they all had reason to know it was false. clapper is just a clown. i mean, he does this all the time. and the idea that james clapper can take responsibility for making the changes, why isn't president obama furious at him? why doesn't president obama fire him today if the president really believed that clapper made a huge mistake? >> gretchen: that's a loaded question because as director of national intelligence to say one thing and then say another, especially when it has to do with al-qaeda, are they throwing him under the bus? >> look, i think he put himself under the bus by probably giving congress in those private briefings, a false answer. he said, we didn't make the changes. he said that to members of congress, presumably he was under oath, and then publicly says, oh, wait, we did make thet perjury. that's all that is. that is not ultimately taking responsibility. look, i think this does rest with two people. susan rice, who made those statements rep
